VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO HONOR AND CONGRATULATE THE STUDENTS, PARENTS, FACULTY, STAFF, AND ADMINISTRATION OF GAFFNEY HIGH SCHOOL OF CHEROKEE COUNTY ON RECEIVING THE PRESTIGIOUS 2006 PALMETTO'S FINEST AWARD AND FOR STRIVING TO REACH AND MAXIMIZE THE FULL MEASURE OF THEIR TALENTS AND ABILITIES.
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives were pleased to learn that Gaffney High School won the coveted 2006 Carolina First Palmetto's Finest Award; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Association of School Administrators and Greenville-based Carolina First Bank annually recognize two elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school that have educators, students, parents, and supporters who are responsible for "innovative, effective educational programs"; and
Whereas, judges who recommend Palmetto's Finest winners take into account objective factors such as test scores and college admission offers but also consider other, sometimes less recognizable factors, such as volunteerism; and
Whereas, each applicant school first completes a seventeen-page written statement detailing virtually every aspect of the school's operation, including staffing, curriculum, programs, resources, and community collaboration; and
Whereas, applicants are then visited by members of the South Carolina Association of School Administrators' Palmetto's Finest Awards Committee; and
Whereas, after the sixteen finalists are selected, each school undergoes a second visit from a different team of committee members, after which a selection meeting is held to determine the four winners; and
Whereas, runners-up in last year's competition, Principal Dr. Quincie Moore and one hundred sixty Gaffney High School representatives attended the awards ceremony held in the Koger Center in Columbia with high hopes of being recognized as the winner; and
Whereas, the school certainly recognizes the importance of a quality education and the ability of its students to learn. Such dedication is readily evident, as the administration, faculty, and surrounding community are more than willing to give of their time, going above and beyond traditional classroom instruction to achieve their goals; and
Whereas, education at Gaffney High School expands the horizons of its students in an innovative and effective manner, serving as a shining example for schools throughout the State. The members of the House of Representatives are proud to honor their effort and success. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That the members of the House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, honor and congratulate the students, parents, faculty, staff, and administration of Gaffney High School of Cherokee County on receiving the prestigious 2006 Palmetto's Finest Award and for striving to reach and maximize the full measure of their talents and abilities.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to Principal Dr. Quincie Moore of Gaffney High School.
